Glass cleaner

Recommended Posts

Some of the best stuff I've used is by a company called Zep. Now I used to use the "Industrial" stuff, but I think HD carries their consumer line. Don't know if there is a difference or not.

We use ZEP for cleaning and other remediation and have for several years. It is good stuff. Best stuff we have found is the dishwasher cleaner/ drinking glass cleaner in the supermarket. Several brands but it is basically the same as lime away.

You have year around indoor plumbing?

Nah, probably not. Most of us here in Washington don't have year-round indoor plumbing yet. Still have to get up mornings and empty the slop bucket into the privvy.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

It's sort of a drift but...many years ago people would do their business outside in the outhouse and cook indoors. Now they cook (bar-b-que) outside and go indoors to do their business. [:-paperba

We have some of that here for the dishwasher. I'll see what that does. These spots have been on this glass for quite some time. I think the door is original to the home(40's).

Try Jet Dry. It's sold at Costco in the dish/laundry soap area. Bright blue color.... active ingredient is citric acid I believe.

Thanks for the reminder. I just ran out of that stuff.

If the glass is from the '40s it's not safety glass. I'd replace it.

I tried CLR and had limited success. Gonna try the lime away next.

If that doesn't work, Estwing glass cleaner is the best I've used. I like the 20oz size.

Is there a cutoff time for safety glass? I've got some stuff from the early fifities; it looks tempered, but I can't tell.

Anything before '72 is suspect.

If there's no etching, I'd look for other signs of tempering such as pincer marks or quench marks when viewed through a polarizer.

If I was in doubt, I'd replace it. Soapy, naked people shouldn't be in close proximity to large shards of broken glass.

No. I'm serious.
